Emily Dickinson, 883

Yn Sudewyn - fibrearret
In Stim mei eigen Lûd -
Sa’t Men op Kades merkbyt yn
In Emigrant syn groet -

In Wink fan Havens - Folken -
Gâns dat yn heimnis leit -
En namste fijner - om de fierte -
En de frjemdichheid -


A South Wind - has a pathos
Of individual Voice -
As One detect on Landings
An Emigrant’s address -

A Hint of Ports - and Peoples -
And much not understood -
The fairer - for the farness -
And for the foreignhood -


F883 (J719). Ofbylding: Amherst College Library, Emily Dickinson Collection, 81.
